3,000 Euro deposit bottle donation

Bodensee-Airport Friedrichshafen supports humedica e.V.

2020/07/14

Since August 2016 a special support campaign for the Kaufbeuren aid organization humedica runs at the Bodensee-Airport Friedrichshafen: passengers can throw their deposit bottles into dedicated containers in front of the security check. The donated bottle deposit benefits completely international projects of the humanitarian aid organization. In 2019 deposit bottles worth 2,407.22 Euro were collected. The Bodensee-Airport Friedrichshafen rounded the sum up to 3,000 Euro and presented now the donation cheque to humedica.

Thanks to this donation humedica can finance important projects, for example the worldwide Corona relief aid, which supports people in more than 20 countries worldwide like India and Brazil with food, hygiene articles, protective clothing as well as medical aid. Currently, humedica rebuilds also a clinic in Ethiopia to ensure that allegedly ordinary diseases do not become life-threatening for people living in the border region near Somalia.

„Our thanks for this valuable support go to the responsible persons at the airport as well as all passengers, who throw their deposit bottles into our containers. They contribute significantly to enable our worldwide help for people in need“, says Carina Freudig, responsible for the deposit bottle projects at humedica. „I would like to thank especially our volunteer supporters. They empty the containers regularly in summer and winter, in good and bad weather. Without them this campaign would not be possible.“

"We appreciate that the bottles, which are collected here, contribute to help vulnerable people“, comments Sascha Jungnitz, Vice President Facility Management at the airport. „And we are all the more happy to round up this sum!“ In the presence of two volunteer helpers, Ursula Dreher and Julius Ander, he handed over the donation cheque of 3,000 Euro to humedica employee Carina Freudig.

The deposit bottle project at the Bodensee airport continues. Passengers at the Allgäu Airport Memmingen, too, can donate the bottle deposit to humedica.
